Do you know that drinking Tequila helps weight loss and reduce the blood sugar?
Some of you may have already prepared the list of unhealthy habits that they want to leave them in the current year. But the new study shows that this might not be the alcohol especially if is tequila.
That’s right: tequila might actually be able to help you lose weight.
According to a 2014 study, the natural sugars found in the agave plant — which is used to make tequila — have the ability to lower blood glucose levels, in turn helping obese people lose weight.
According to Mercedes G. López, one of the researchers who took part in the study, the elements that are contained in tequila help to increase levels of a hormone that slows down the rate at which the stomach becomes empty. This makes you feel fuller for longer.
In another study, scientists fed mice a standard diet and added natural sugars, called agavins, to some of their water. They discovered that the mice who consumed agavins ate less overall and had lower blood glucose levels.
Do agavins affect us differently compared to other sweeteners? López explained that unlike other sweeteners, such as high-fructose corn syrup, agavins can’t be digested by being broken down by the human body and, therefore, don’t raise blood glucose levels.
So next time someone points out that you’re still drinking tequila after New Year, tell them it’s part of your plan to lose weight!
